So here’s the thing. While on the surface, I support us preventing the CCP from mining our phones, I dislike the idea of giving the federal government to just ban a social media platform at will. This will be used against the government’s political enemies. As we see from the democrat party already they have no problem abusing government to go after people who disagree with them.
So which answer-option did you select in the poll?
Thank you for providing this.
I saw that on Tucker’s show last night.
The last time republicans and democrats agreed on something we got the patriot act.
PRISM was launched from the ashes of President George W. Bush’s domestic surveillance programs, which were abandoned due to lawsuits, disclosures in the media and widespread protest.
Due to past controversies, this program was given the legal go-ahead by the U. S. Congress when it passed the Protect America Act in 2007. Also, the FISA Amendments Act of 2008 gave legal immunity to private companies that cooperated voluntarily with U. S Intelligence agencies.
Microsoft became PRISM’s first partner in 2007 and the NSA began collecting vast amounts of data from its servers. Other companies joined the program in due course. In 2008, Congress gave the Justice Department authority to compel a reluctant company to “comply” with the needs of PRISM. This means that even companies that were not willing to join the program voluntarily had to do so at the behest of a court order.
